As I look back on 2019 and a little further back, I see a lot of accomplishments that I’ve have. They range from running a full marathon to paying off our mortgage 16 years early.
There’s also sponsoring our first World Vision child, Moorosi. Or running my fastest 25K in the Riverbank Run. Or there’s the travel Pam and I have done.
It was a great year. Don’t get me wrong. I’m so happy and excited for the things Pam and I have done in our personal and professional lives.
Yet… there’s something more. There’s this feeling like I’m not doing enough. Or I’m not enough.
Life always feels like there needs to be just a little bit more. Then I’ll have made it. Or then I’ll have everything I’ve ever dreamed of.
Life isn’t that simple.
Life is more than the things you have or the trips you take. Whether or not you have a mortgage or a car payment.
You have to learn how to be content with what you have been given. You have to trust what you have is enough.
If you don’t, you’re always going to be looking for the next shiny object. And life will never be enough.
